Social Taboos Like Farts and Boners Explode Via Daniel Radcliffe's Corpse: Swiss Army Man

Rich Juzwiak · 06/23/16 03:04PM

The Sundance sensation Swiss Army Man essentially wonders what Cast Away would have been like if Wilson weren’t a volleyball but a corpse named Manny (played by Daniel Radcliffe) whose bodily functions like farting and boners helped our stranded protagonist Hank find his way home (the farts propel Manny over ocean like a jet ski, and his boner works as a compass). What flourishes is what one of the movie’s directors, Daniel Scheinert, deems a “gray love story.” Swiss Army Man is, in a word, insane.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 comes out Friday, so naturally we'll be seeing its stars hit the talk show circuit this week.

Seth Abramovitch · 06/23/11 01:35AM

Any news story about a fatality on the Great White Way should instantly bring to mind everyone's favorite web slinger, but while Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has maimed many, it has yet to actually kill anyone. (And let's hope it stays that way.) But it's another musical — the far less death-defying revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying — that had to contend with the sad loss of a crew member on Wednesday night, just minutes before the curtain went up on its 100th performance.

Daniel Radcliffe's (Fully Clothed) Broadway Singing and Dancing

Richard Lawson · 03/31/11 12:28PM

The last time we saw Harry Potter on the White Way, he was stark naked (talk about white!), running around and jumping up and down. Yup. This time, in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, he's wearing suits and... running around and jumping up and down! In dance form. If you're curious about what this curious sight looks like, but can't shell out the approximately $3,000,000 that a ticket costs these days, here is some b-roll video of the Boy Who Lived in action. He's cute! Not great, but cute. [via Popeater]
